The key objective of the LATM Study is to identify and address issues which exist within the Study Area associated with traffic management and safety for drivers, pedestrians and cyclists

The LATM Study does not include on-street parking as the Council is undertaking a City-Wide Parking Review as a separate project.

Study Stages

The LATM Study is being delivered in two community consultation stages. The timeline below contains a summary of the Study Stages.

LATM Study Timeline

  • Stage 1


    Members of the community, including residents, property and business owners, were invited to assist in identifying the key issues which needed to be considered and addressed. More than 400 written submissions were received.

    An analysis of the Stage 1 consultation results, as well as the various traffic data which was collated from the Study Area, is currently being undertaken and will guide the development of a Draft Local Area Traffic Management Report (the draft Report).

    The draft Report will set out the key issues which have been identified and recommend strategies to address these issues. Completion of the draft Report is expected by the end of June 2018.

  • Stage 2


    Community Consultation (16 July - 6 August 2018).

    This round of consultation will invite residents, property and business owners and members of the community to provide comments on the draft Report.

    These comments will guide the development of the final Report, which is expected to be presented to the Council for endorsement in late 2018.

Beulah Road Bicycle BoulevardBeulah Road Bicycle Boulevard cyclists thumb

Cost: $1,000,000

Status: Design stage

One of the priority infrastructure actions arising from the Council’s City-wide Cycling Plan is the development of a Bicycle Boulevard along Beulah Road, Norwood, between Portrush Road and Fullarton Road.

Beulah Road is the first Bicycle Boulevard to be progressed in the City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters. This is a priority route used by cyclists and aligns with adjoining Councils priorities for cycling accessibility and State Government objectives for connectivity and safety for cyclists in the east.

The intent of this major project is to enhance Beulah Road as a safer and more attractive cycling route than along the parallel arterial roads of The Parade or Magill Road, whilst maintaining existing accessibility and car parking for motorists.

The Final Design Concept, which was amended to address the comments and feedback which resulted from the community consultation, was endorsed by the Council at its 6 June meeting.

The Council has allocated $500,000 in its 2016-2017 Budget for the implementation of the Project and has applied for external funding from the State Government’s Greenways and Bicycle Boulevard Fund.

Norwood Oval

Norwood Oval Clubrooms and Members Facilities

Update 31 January 2019

Cost: $5,320,000

Norwood Oval Streetscape Works

Update 31 January 2019

Cost: $500,000

Construction of the Norwood Oval Upgrade is scheduled to commence in March 2019 and is expected to be completed by December 2019.

The new facilities will result in long-term social and economic benefits for the Norwood Football Club and the wider community, as well as the creation of over 30 jobs during the construction phase.

Highlights of the multi-purpose facility include a 180-seat Members Facility, new kitchen, new Premier’s Bar, refurbished player’s change rooms, accessible public toilets and a merchandise outlet.

The facility, to be known as the Wolf Blass Centre, will be funded by the Council, with the remaining being funded by the Norwood Football Club.

The Club’s contribution comprises of $2 million that it will receive over seven years from the SANFL as a result of the sale of AAMI Stadium, with the balance to be funded by the Club’s ‘Build the Fort’ capital fundraising campaign.

Norwood Football Club President Paul Di Iulio said to date the Club has raised $3.76 million for the redevelopment, which includes a $1M donation from long-time Norwood supporter and wine maker Wolf Blass, and $250,000 from the Federal Government.

In addition to the new Clubrooms & Members’ Facilities, the upgrade of Norwood Oval will also include new Women’s facilities underneath the Western Stand.

The growth in popularity of female sports has meant that facilities such as Norwood Football Oval are in high demand to cater for teams playing in new competitions and leagues. Given that the Norwood Oval currently hosts AFLW and SANFLW matches and female friendly facilities are essential for this to continue and expand.

The new Clubrooms & Members’ Facilities together with new Women’s Facilities, will substantially improve the quality and diversity of the facilities at the Norwood Oval which will meet both the needs and expectations of current and future players and umpires, as female participation in football continues to grow.

The Council successfully obtained a South Australian Government Grant of $482,500 as well as a grant of $150,000 from the Australia Football League (AFL), for the development of Women’s Facilities at the Norwood Oval.

The Council has also allocated $500,000 for upgrades and streetscape improvements to the car park adjacent to the Sir Edwin T Smith Stand and sections of Woods Street, adjacent to the Oval.

Waterproofing Eastern Adelaide Project


Update 31 January 2019

The Eastern Regional Alliance (ERA) Waterproofing Eastern Adelaide Stormwater Harvesting and Re-Use Project, is a significant multi-million dollar regional stormwater harvesting and reuse Project.

The Project is being undertaken in partnership by three of the Eastern Regional Alliance (ERA) Councils, which includes the City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters, Town of Walkerville and City of Burnside.

The Project is funded by ERA with assistance from the Australian Federal Government, through the National Urban Water and Desalination Plan and the Adelaide & Mount Lofty Ranges Natural Resources Management Board, which assisted the Councils in the initial stages and continues to be an integral contributor to the Project.

Project objective

The key objective of the Project is to harvest and reuse stormwater for irrigation. Stormwater will be harvested and treated during winter and stored in underground aquifers, then recovered for use in summer for irrigating public reserves across the partnering Council areas.

This exciting initiative will reduce the City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters reliance on mains water and its reliance on water from the River Murray and enhance the quality of the water that is discharged to The Gulf.

Crucial to the successful operation of the harvesting and reuse scheme, is the provision of water treatment sites. One such site is the new wetland located in the City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters at Felixstow Reserve. This wetland was integrated into the overall design of the newly developed Felixstow Reserve to ensure that an innovative and well-designed outcome was achieved.

Felixstow Reserve Masterplan Project

Given the size of the proposed wetland and significant financial investment that would be required, the Council has taken the opportunity to concurrently undertake a Masterplan for Felixstow Reserve. This will ensure that the proposed wetland is integrated into the overall design to redevelop Felixstow Reserve and that an innovative and well-designed outcome for the Reserve is achieved.
